The Blue Houseboat

Unlikely Australian icon in crawley

Take a drive along Perth’s scenic Mounts Bay Road any day of the week and you will see queues of tourists along a narrow riverside footpath waiting to snap the perfect selfie with this beautiful Blue Boat House.

The unlikely star attraction is a quaint, formerly derelict, 90-year-old blue boathouse. To use its official name, the Crawley Edge Boatshed is an Australian icon, loved by locals and especially tourists.
